  • HOD Markbooks. A whole markbook consisting of multiple classes can now be viewed and edited at once. Students can be filtered by year level or course, or the whole school (no filter)

NOTE: if there is a "whole school" markbook (e.g. at a primary school) with several hundred students this can currently be slow to load and save, a single class will be selected by default.
